The Colors of the Rainbow

My lovely daughter Ava Belle and her friends had the opportunity to learn ballroom dancing through Dancing Classrooms in their school. Dancing Classrooms is a non-profit organization that was started in New York to teach 5th grade students how to ballroom dance. The Mission statement of the New York chapter is:

“Our mission is to cultivate essential life skills in children through the art of social dance. Our vision is to help create schools and communities where every child is connected, respected, and provided a safe environment in which to thrive.”

This has been one of the most amazing opportunities that Ava has been able to take part in. Ava was picked to be a part of the team that competed yesterday against five other elementary schools in the area. They tied for the silver medal and you can see the kids loved every minute of it. The competition was named “The Colors of the Rainbow.” Rosemary Harris, Aunt May in the Spiderman movies, was there to cheer the kids along. They really loved that! Thank you to the all of the teachers and staff that supported this program coming into our school!
